Micah (onemorebaker) | 1071 comments thanks for posting the link to these. While I won't post them to my facebook profile I am somewhat of a digital hoarder and have been collecting the awesome WOT artwork that TOR has been releasing lately.

Ooh Perrin's is pretty cool:

Edited and stuck image in OP

I'm actually using Mat's on FB..but don't care too much about FB either..I plan to just download/keep them all since they've been great so far.


terpkristin | 4132 comments Those are great.

Today's was Rand. I modified the OP to include them all.

I'll be curious if they do another tomorrow who it will be. Egwene maybe?

Yep. I've love to see more insight on what goes into producing a cover, and stats on why what's chosen is chosen. Movie posters and book covers get very same-y, even across genres. I find it odd that a really great book cover is an oddity.

yea..it was Egwene. I'm thinking I may try to make some kind of collage wallpaper out of these..but the only editing software I have on my PC atm is paint..might be time to bring out the gimp!


William Bylaska Very cool! Thanks for posting! I'm only on book 4 so I'm not going to get to enjoy the celebration of the last book so much which is a shame... Hopefully I'll get to it before the new year.

Tai'shar Manetheren!

Rik | 777 comments These are cool. The Rand one was is lifted directly from the cover of Memory of Light but where do the others come from?

There was a link to ablog post explaining in each of the links I posted. This one talks about Egwene.

Darren mentioned that each come from the eBook covers.


Micah (onemorebaker) | 1071 comments Looks like they have stopped posting them. Dang. I was hoping they would produce one from every cover.

Yeah it was only for that week sadly. I wish they did higher resolution too.

Rather than making a new post, I figured I'd just add on here.

They released a wallpaper from the Knife of Dreams eBook:

Actually that looks to just be the latest in a series they've been doing all year.

If you go to The Memory of Light page and scroll down to the Art, Wallpapers, and Banners section there are ones from each of the previous books as well.
